I have stayed here on several occasions over the years due to the location. The hotel is near many bar locations so you need to expect that there are people that will stay there ready to party. I only had one out of numerous times where the noise from others was intolerable. I talked to management and they took care...

This hotel was offered as the hotel of choice for a family wedding in Erie. The hotel staff was very nice, but the accommodations were less than desirable. When we checked in, we were sent to our room ( which was said to be ready) to find the bed unmade/uncleaned. We had to switch to a different room--which was on...

When I arrived. I clearly went to the front desk to check in after circling the building to find a parking spot I felt safe to do so in. The woman at the front desk was ok.she was a bit rude. When I told her I had a reservation she said I hope so. I in return said I absolutely...

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions. Some rooms are more newly renovated than others. Parking is underground, and is included. If you are in Erie for events that are located downtown, this is the best place to stay, as most everything is within walking distance. The Warner Theater, Jerry Uht Ballpark, The Erie Insurance Arena, etc. In...

We had a large group staying at this hotel for a recent wedding. I would not recommend this hotel in its current state of management. 1.) The line to check in was a long wait due to only 2 computers and a third woman trying to mircomanage the 2 staff members able to utilize the computers. 2.) The rooms were...

Absolutely Beautiful Wedding! It was everything I imagined! Wedding was outside in the court yard. Erica was the best!!! I offered to come in and help set up and do center pieces and was told NO. Food was great!! Our suite was huge and clean beside the bathroom mold. One shower never got hot water but the other shower in...

There was a wedding at the hotel and clearly not enough front desk staff to handle the influx of guests. We waited for 20 minutes just to speak with a clerk. The newly renovated room was mediocre. The bed was soft and the towels were like sandpaper. The free continental breakfast was quite skimpy and one waffle maker for the...

Our experience started with the creepy parking garage with human feces present. Then escalated to entering our room which had not been cleaned. And to top it off, we put up with a all night sex a thon in the room next door. The walls were so thin, not only did I hear it all, my bed moved as well....

I would not wish an experience like that of my family and I on anyone! Unfortunately, I was given false information regarding the Avalon and not knowing the Erie area at all, I just took the word shared. It was a waste of $400 for the following reasons: -poor and limited customer service; apparently there was only one person working...

Basic accommodations in a convenient location. If the elevators and the basement waiting area for the elevators were cleaned up it would make a positive impact on the experience. The free breakfast was basic but acceptable. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the washrooms were older but not anything that would stop a person from staying at...
